Petites Pièces et Petits Plus signés : la droguerie

I’ve been looking for the perfect pattern to knit my Handmaiden Fine Yarn Rumple. I wanted a shrug – a shawl, I felt, would be too drapey and too not able to keep its shape. So a shrug would do… and because of the type of yarn, probably a loose-ish one would do. I came across Boléro adulte la droguerie, however, it’s only in French (not too much of a problem, I’d imagine – could come in handy when attempting to translate German patterns later), however, it’s also only sold along with yarn in their store, in France, and in their only remaining publication which contains it and is not yet out of print: Petites Pièces et Petits Plus signés : la droguerie, not available online – anywhere.

So, if anyone has a copy, or is able to get their hands on one, of this pattern, or even the book, please do get in touch! I’d like to buy it off you if you’re looking to get rid of it. Or, if you can get one for me, and I can pay you back – either way. I’ve also emailed the store proprietor, incorrectly assuming that because the first publication that contained the pattern was out of print, that the second one was as well, but perhaps she’ll find a way to get me the book without having to mail a probably not accepted Canadian cheque to a French retailer somewhere I’ve never been and have no idea still exists.

Did you ever think you’d live to the day someone complained that there wasn’t a way to purchase something (safely) online? Lol, sorry – web dev joke.

Cheerio.

    Did you ever manage to get a copy of this pattern book? I am also searching, to no avail, for one of the patterns from this book: Cardigan/Brassière Caresse Point mousse (Gilet à Rangs Raccourcis). I saw it on ravelry and would really love to make one. If you found a way to get the book would you let me know how you managed it? Thanks,
    Laura

        Hello Laura! I had an email chain going with the store in France. I think they want me to call in my credit card number, to buy the pattern in French. I need to follow up with them. I’ll keep you updated. Thanks for your alternate suggestion – Moussaillon – it is pretty! I’ll consider it 🙂

          Did you finally locate the pattern? If so, would you share how you were able to with me? Thanks.

    Alas! I, too, am hunting for the same pattern (it’s really nice, isn’t it?) and I believe I could translate it but I’ve been unable to get my hands on the pattern. Were you successful?

    Hi there, I’m so glad you wrote this post! Were you ever able to find the pattern? I just came across it on Ravelry and it looks like the perfect piece to layer over long-sleeved shirts this fall. If you found it I’d love to learn how. 🙂 thanks!

    I echo Chrintina’s post. I have tried to find a bolero that is similar to the one on revelry but have not been able to locate one. We’re you eventually able to locate the pattern, and if so, how? Thanks.
